Nice APA from Ninkasi. Pours a hazy gold with a 2 finger foam head - respectable lacing so far. Very interesting balance between sweet floral hop flavours and bitterness. Very well balanced. Has a dry hoppy palate and is very drinkable. Yum!

Bottle from Safeway in Milwaukie OR. Pours an almost clear orange / amber. Mild hoppy nose with malts smoothing the initial and palate tasting....pleasant....not sure about the session part...6% is a little heavy for a full evening...but guess everyone wants on the session wagon.

Ever since my first Ninkasi, Iíve been ravenous in my attempts to procure as many of their beers as possible. Pours slightly hazy, deep golden color, similar to what typical beer advertisements usually depict. Smells of biscuits and sweet wort. Unfortunately, that pleasant malt aroma quickly dissipates once you actually taste the beer leaving a watery bitterness for your mouth to contend with. Thatís fine with me, but as a session beer, I can see others finding it disagreeable. Not bad, but Iíd rather have a Sierra Nevada.

very nice, crisp beer. Ninkasi rarely makes a stinker and this one is no dud. Had from 22 oz bottle.

On tap at Collins. Pours a honey straw color with an off-white head and clings. Aromas of sugar and caramel and toasted malts. Taste is hoppy, though, with sharp citrus and some floral.

Up there quite high in the eschelons of my favorite APAs. This is nearly IPA, said near-IPAness being a characteristic reminiscent of Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale. These particularly memorable APAs succeed by infusing more bitterness into their profiles. I donít know what hop varieties in particular might have been used in the process of bringing this beer recipe to fruition, but one thing is unmistakable: itís heavy on the hop trichomes or whatever the relevant bitterness molecules are called.
